As voted on by 16 coaching legends

Saturday brought chaos to college football, creating nearly a complete overhaul in the rankings after six of the top 10 teams went down in defeat.
 
No. 3 Florida State made the most impressive statement of the weekend, demolishing then-No. 3 Clemson 51-14 in Death Valley. The Seminoles became the first team to score 50 or more points at Clemson. The loss dropped the Tigers to No. 10.
 
Top-ranked Alabama managed to tighten its stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the Legends Poll. The Crimson Tide received 15 of the 16 first place votes and remain the lone SEC team in the top 10.
 
No. 2 Oregon stayed unbeaten as it awaits a showdown with No. 15 UCLA next weekend. UCLA suffered its first loss at the hands of No. 5 Stanford Saturday but poses a challenge for Oregon.
 
Ohio State held on against Iowa at home and stayed put at No. 4.
 
No. 6 Baylor made its highest ever appearance in the Legends Poll and first ever showing in the top 10. No. 7 Missouri, No. 8 Miami (FL) and No. 9 Texas Tech all made their top 10 appearances this season.
 
Auburn made one of the biggest moves in the rankings, jumping all the way to No. 12 after knocking off Johnny Manziel and No. 17 Texas A&M Saturday.
 
No. 22 Northern Illinois, No. 24 Oregon State and No. 25 Arizona State were also newcomers to the rankings this week.
 
Florida, Georgia, Washington and Texas all dropped out of the top 25.
